PREFACE. 


Tue Delegates of the Clarendon Press have kindly consented to issue the description of the Persian 
MSS.—the last sheet of which has just been printed off—as Part I of my complete ‘Catalogue of the 
Persian, Turkish, Hindüstâni, and Pushtü MSS. in the Bodleian Library, in order to present this 
volume in a handy form to the forthcoming eighth International Oriental Congress at Stockholm and 
Christiania. Part II, which is in a forward state of preparation, will contain—(1) the description of the 
Turkish, Hindüstâni, and Pushtü MSS. in the Bodleian; (2) a complete Index of the whole work (in 
five distinct sections: index of titles, index of names of persons, index of geographical names and Ansâb, 
general index of subjects, and index of dates or chronological register of historical and literary events) ; 
(3) a full Conspectus Manuscriptorum ; and (4) an Introduction on the various collections of Muham- 
madan MSS. in the Bodleian and their origin. Those MSS. which bear the pressmark ‘Ouseley’ 
were originally described by my learned friend Professor Sachau, of Berlin, but afterwards revised, 
i.e. enlarged or curtailed (as the case might be), by myself, and amalgamated with the present Cata- 
logue. Section D, ‘ Zoroastrian Literature, ete. is almost exclusively Professor Sachau's work, as very 
few MSS. outside the Ouseley Collection belong to that older branch of Irânian literature.

In transcribing Persian and Arabic words the principle of representing the Eastern orthography—not 
the pronunciation—has been followed.

ADDENDA AND CORRIGENDA, 


of 755); comp. also Schefer, Chrestomathie 
Persane, ii. p. 6, where extracts from this 
work are given. 

Col. 164, 1. 43. Read انيب‎ instead of 
اتیب‎ ۰ 

Col. 169, No. 313. The pressmark is to be 
changed into ELLrorT 331. 

Col. 175, No. 323. This work, which con- 
tains besides a history of Shüstar, also a 
detailed account of the author’s life and 
travels, was written A.H. 1215-1216=A.D. 
1800, 1801, see a full description of it in 
Rieu i. p. 383. 

Col. 187, No. 343. The proper title, ac- 
cording to W. Pertsch, Berlin Catal., is 
wk رف‎ based on the twenty- 
seventh book of Al-Bukhari. 

Col. 188, No. 347. Read in the author’s 
name Nizam-alfadli instead of al'akli; 
comp. Rieu iii. p. 969. 

Col. 191, No. 356. The pressmark is to be 
changed into FRASER 96. 

Col. 256 (No. 21). Read Turdi instead of 
Tardi. 

Col. 261, No. 383. Shaikh ‘Ali Hazin’s 
autobiography was completed A.H.1154; see 
Rieu i. p. 381. 

Col. 287, 1. 7. The date for 'Işmat-allâh's 
death, although distinctly given in the MS. 
as stated, must needs be altered into A.H. 
826 or 829, see p. 595, 1. 5 sq. in this Catal. 

Col. 316, No.395. The statement, that the 
Makhzan-algharâ'ib is the largest biogra- 
phical dictionary of Persian poets, holds no 
longer good, since in W. Pertsch, Berlin 
Catal., p. 627 sq., a full list of the poets in 
the Suhuf-i-Ibrahimi (by ‘Ali Ibrahimkhan 
Khalil, the author of the Khulasat-alkalam, 
No. 390) is given, which numbers 3278 
(130 more than in the Makhzan). 

Col. 319, 1.15. The statement that Amân- 
allah Amani lived in Humâyün's reign, as 
given in the Makhzan, cannot be right, 
since the poet died as late as A.H. 1046 
or 1044, see p. 683, last lines sq. 

Col. 335 (No. 937). Read Muhammad 
Kasim 2:071 instead of Razi (which is quite 
distinct in the MS.), as the alphabetical 
arrangement requires here ز‎ as initial letter. 

Col. 340, 1. 32. Read some other Sharif 
instead of Shuhüdi. 

Col. 354, 1. 28, Read Jabal instead of 
Jabal. 

Col. 369 (No, 2192). Read Kdfi instead of 
Khâfi. 

Col. 420, No. 439. The first missing leaf 
of Ous. Add. 161 has been foundin a col- 
lection of fragmentary pieces and inserted. 
The copy therefore contains now 16 
the first chapter begins on fol. 7°, the six- 
teenth on fol. 214°, and the conclusion on 
fol. 221°, 

Col. 434,1. 6. Read ‘ younger brother’ in- 
stead of friend. 

bz 


(PRELIMINARY LIST.) 


Col. 101, ll. 1 and 2. The proper date is 
1227 of the Faşli era=a.D. 1819, March 
19; 1.6 ab infra, No. 179. The original de- 
scription of this MS. by Prof. Sachau has 
escaped a thorough revision, and several 
manifest errors must consequently be recti- 
fied here ; ll. 49 sq. mustrun thus: ‘stating, 
that the oldest translation of the Wâki'ât-i- 
Bâbari was made by Zain-aldin Khwâfi 
(fol. 1°, 1. 1, who died A.H. مهو‎ A. D. 1533, 
1534; see Rieu iii. p. 926°), after whom 
followed Mirzâ Pâyanda (so to be read 
instead of Banida) Hasan Ghaznawi Farsi 
(fol. 2”, 1. 2), who translated the first part of 
these memoirs at the command of Mu'in- 
aldin Bihrüzkhân, a son (not a ‘‘descend- 
ant”) sq.;” comp. Rieu ii. p. 799. 

Col. 102, 1: 6. Read Mu'in-aldin Bihraz- 
khân's instead of Akbar’s. 

Col. 104,1. 23. Read 3264 instead of 32. 

Col. 105,1. 7 ab infra. Badâ'üni died A.H. 
1004 or 1006=A.D. 1596 or 1598, not, as 
stated in the text, A, H. 1024. 

Col.117,1.8 ab infra. Read Begam instead 
of Begum. 

Col. 123, No. 237. The proper title of this 
work, according to Rieu i. p. 261, is 

Ts 


yasi; 1. 13, read ‘Abd-alhamid instead 
of Abü-alhamid. 

Col. 124, 1. 24. Read Haidari instead of 
Haidari. 

Col. 127, No. 243. Morley's statement, 
repeated here, that the work was composed 
in the ‘ thirty-second year of the emperor’s 
reign’ (=A.H. 1100) is wrong, since the 
author, according to Rieu iii. p. 1083”, died 
already A.H. 1092 = A.D. 1681. No. 245: 
The Lubb-altawârikh was composed A.H. 
1106 < ۸:۲۰ 1694, 1695; see Rieu i. p, 228 sq., 
and the India Office copies. 

Col. 128, ll. 27, 29, and 35. Read خضر‎ 
instead of ضر‎ 

Col. 129, No. 246. The Khulâşat-altawâ- 
rikh was completed in the fortieth year of 
“Âlamgir's reign, but the bulk of tbe his- 
tory only goes down to the death of Prince 
Dârâ Shuküh and “Âlamgir's accession; see 
Rieu i. p. 230. 

Col. 138, 1. 28. Read Yahyâ instead of 
Yahya. 

Col. 139,1. 20. Read Kdyath instead of 
Kaitah. 

Col. 141, No. 266. Read simply Shah 
‘Alam instead of Shah ‘Alam 11 last line, 
read wives instead of women. 

Col. 150, No. 285. Comp. also Rieu ii. 
p. 811°. 

Col. 153,11. 17 and 38. Read 1629 instead 
of 1628. 

Col. 161, No. 308. A joint author of the 
Arabic original was Abt) Muhammad ‘Abd- 
allah bin Labari (see Rieu i. p. 333, where 
as year of completion is given 757 instead 


Column 21, line 34. Read Garshdsp in- 
stead of Gurshâsp. 
Col. 22. No, 33 is not the 5 التوارد‎ $35 


of Hafiz Abrü, but merely the geographical 
work of the same author, described in Rieu i. 
. 421 ۰ 

Col. 23,1. 4 ab infra. “Ali Yazdi's Zafar- 
nama. According to Rieu i. p. 423, it is 
undoubtedly Nizamshâhi's earlier work of 
the same title. 

Col. 29,1. 2. Read Sir William Chambers 
instead of Jumpers. 

Col.31,1.1. Read ¥asuf instead of Yusuf; 
the same correction applies to coll. 59, 1. 3; 
62, 1.36; 63, 11. 23 and 30; and 93, 1.14. 

Col. 34, No. 71. The three leaves missing 
in Ouseley Add. 163 (v—3) have been found 
in a collection of fragmentary pieces and 
inserted between ff. 6 and 7. The copy has 
therefore now Ff. 546. 

Col. 43, No. 97 (General History). This is 
the Ta'rikh-i-Ibrâhimi by Ibrahim bin 
Jarir, as a comparison with the India Office 
copies has shown; comp. also Rieu iii. pp. 
10133 and 10469, and Elliot, History of 
India, iv.p. 213sg. The history goes down 
to A.H. 956 or 957 =A. D. 1549, 1550. 

Col. 50, No. 102; comp. for the Subh-i- 
Sadik also Rieu ii. p. 889. 

Col. 54, last line. Read Muhammad 
Bakhsh instead of Baksh. 

Col. 55, No. 114. The Mirât-al'âlam, 
usually ascribed to Muhammad Bakhtâwar- 
khan, is in reality the work of Shaikh Mu- 
hammad Baka; comp. Rieu, loc. cit. 

Col.59,1.7. Read‘ Ali Wirdikhân instead

ADDENDA AND CORRIGENDA.

this fragment of the Gulistân, has been 
found and inserted as fol. 15 ; the copy con- 
tains therefore now Ff. 27. 

Col, 1133, No. 2000. Two of the first leaves 
of this fragment have been found, and show 
at once that the work in question is merely 
Sa‘di’s Gulistân ; fol. 32 is therefore now 
34°, and the number of folios 55. Begin- 
ning of the first leaf corresponds to Bodl. 
Or. 673, fol. 6°, 1. 1; end of the last to fol. 
54°, 1. رو‎ in the same copy. 


Some of the pressmarks have been mis- 
spelt in the greater part of the Catalogue;

Laud and Bodley, Caps. Or., Laud Or. 
and 8001. Or. respectively ; Marsh. is simply 
Marsh, and Grave correctly Greaves.

Pers. d. 9 has been found, but as the Ms. 
is full of lacunas, it is impossible for the 
present to locate it properly. It has been 
inserted at the end; the number of folios

into Persian by Muhammad b. Muhammad b.'Abdallâh

Beginning : کامران آفریننده‎ OL بر خدای‎ yi

The first volume contains the ante-Muhammadan 
history, beginning with the creation of the world; the 
second brings the history down from the birth of 
Muhammad to the death of Husain (4.4. 61); the 
third is the continuation till the reign of Almuktafi- 
billâh (A.H. 289-295). The last two chapters relate 
the murder of Badr, the governor of Fârsistân, and 
the struggle with Dhikrawaihi b. Mihrawaihi, the chief 
of the Karmats (A.H. 294). 

Then follows on fol. 5522 a concluding chapter of 
the translator about the end of Dhikrawaihi, the death 
of Almuktafi, and the succession of his brother Almuk- 
tadir-billâh (A.H. 295). Beginning of this chapter :

begins with Muhammad’s birth, goes down to Almu‘-

five pages a short account of this Khalif and of twenty

Khalifs till Almuktadi (A.H, 467-487). 

سپاس vi‏ مرخدایرا که ران وآفریده : Beginning‏ —

This copy contains two introductions and an addition. 

The first preface,which is the only one in Ous. 206-208 
and Ous. 359, 360, probably composed by the redactor of 


(one in gold ink) to this effect: تبری را‎ ab ES این‎

(sic) 0. On fol. 417> are written several chrono-‏ 
grams. On the first page there are three seals,‏ 

probably containing the names of former possessors. 

The first volume and ff. rrr—vo of the second seem to 
be written by one hand; the remainder of the second 
volume, ff. ۳٥٣-۴۱۵, formed originally a part of another 
considerably older manuscript. The handwriting of 
this portion is likewise Naskhi, but the paper is of a 
darker colour, and the single pages are bordered by two 
red lines. After it was bound together with the more 
recent part, a new pagination was put over the leaves, 
and the old numbers cancelled. Of the original MS. 
this portion was ff. rrv—rat. 

This oldest MS., however, does not seem to have 
been complete, because after fol. 415 there is an 
abrupt break in the chronicle, and on the following 
last two folios, 416, 417, a more recent hand has con- 
tinued the history by short notes relating to the 
succeeding Khalifs, 

There seem to be at least two lacunas in this older 
part; at the same time the leaves are wrongly bound 
together. The proper arrangement of the leaves is 
this: ۳۹۴, ۳۹۵-۴۰, (395-400 are bound after rir), th. i. 
ff. ۳٣. ۳٣٣-٣٣٣ according to the paging of the older 
MS. Wanting £.1—8.3 (or riv—rvo according to the

rva of the older MS.) bound after rae. Wanting 
۴۱۴ (=rva), middle of the chapter on Almu‘tazz. The 
last leaves follow in the right order. Lastly, it must 
be noticed that the paging ۴۱۴-۴۱۷ is an alteration 
for ۴۱۵-۴۱ رم‎ made in order to disguise the lacuna after 
۴٣۳ (or rva according to the original pagination).

to be, for its greater part, an abridgment from the 
Ta'rikh-i-Tabari. It begins with the first of the Sâsâ- 
nians, Ardashir Babak, and comes down (the arrange- 
ment of the single materials being upon the whole the 
same as in Tabari) to the martyrdom of Hasan, Husain, 
and the sons of Ja'far Tayyâr. The principal contents 
are—The Sâsânians from Ardashir to Nüshirwân on 
fol. 3b; the kings of Yaman, beginning with Tubba', on 
fol. 17>; the Aşhâb-aluhdüd on fol. rgb; the Ashab- 
alkahf, or the seven sleepers, on fol. 27>; history of 
Salman the Persian on fol. 332; history of the four 
persons who abandoned idolatry before Muhammad’s

In the last four pages there are many lacunas, as the 
original, from which this was transcribed, was here pro- 
bably illegible. 

According to the note on fol. 2872 it was copied by 
“Abd-alrazzâk, A.H. 1197=A.D. 1783. In the same 
handwriting several other MSS. of the Ouseley Collec- 
tion (see Nos. 51, 52, 166, etc.) are written. The copyist 
is probably the same, who is mentioned in Elliot’s 
History of India, ii. p. 386, as Sarrishtadar of the 
Civil Court of Farrukhâbâd.

Part of Abü-alkâsim Simnâni's modern edition of 
the same work. 

Another, guite modern and revised, edition of the 
Persian translation of Tabari's history. The redactor, 
Abü-alkâsim Simnâni, collated all the former versions, 
especially the several redactions of Bal‘ami’s translation, 
and another one, published in ‘Ubaid-allah Khan Uzbeg 
Sheibani’s name, with the old original work, and so made, 
as he believes, a correct new paraphrase, see fol. 1», 1. 8:

has made great confusion. The chapter begins with 
stating that in Greece sciences were very flourishing, 
and that Greek sages composed inestimable books, par- 
ticularly on medicine and physics; then it proceeds to 
give a short account of the following princes :

the reigning Sultân ‘Abd-alrashid, A.H. 443-444=

work, but only selected chapters; it was probably 
copied in India for Jonathan Scott, the translator of the

people of the west (Greeks), people of the north (Turks),

Greeks and Zangis are omitted. 

Account of the Turks on ff. 2218-246, 

Account of the Hindüs on ff. 246-2624, 

From this table of contents it will appear that this 
MS. contains portions of a most valuable work, which 
seems to be entirely unknown. These portions are not 
very judiciously selected; in several places the order is 
disturbed, and quite incoherent parts are put together, 
as if the copyist has wished to conceal the lacunas of 
the book. 

The author quotes in several places Abü-Raihân 
Albirtini (on ff. 179, 217, from the latter passage it is 
evident that Kardizi was acquainted with, and probably 
a pupil of Birüni, who died A.H. 440; it runs thus:

The arrangement of the single chapters (here they 
are not called Tabakah) is somewhat different from the 
original; besides the compiler had made three addi- 
tions, and in some places the MS. has lacunas (there are 
left blank ff. 22, 23, 30% (for the greater part), 30>, 31, 
98>, 100, ror, and a part of 1424), Compared with 
the original the order is this : I, II (the greater part), 
111 wanting; VI, V, IV, additions (on ff. yıb—8sb) ; 
VII-XII, XVII-XXII, XIII-XVI, additions (on 
ff. 1309-1344, and ff. 1342-142); XXIII, addition. 

Missing is the history of the descendants of ‘Ali (II)

from the Ta'rikh-i-Jahânkushâ, the author of which 
died A.K. 681.

their history from Hasan Sabah to Rukn-aldin Khâ-

A.H. 654=A.D. 1256. This account is not identical 
with that in the fourth volume of the Raudat-alşafâ, 
but possibly originating from thence.

The chronological order is for the greater part 
identical with that in Tabari (comp. Morley, p. 19); the 
accounts of a dynasty or nation are frequently split into 
several portions, intermixed with reports of contempo- 
rary events in other countries. 

Immediately after the preface of five lines the history 
begins in the following order : 

History of Adam, Eve, and their posterity as intro- 
duction (fol. 1»).

Persia from Gayâmarth to Yazdajird (on fol. 52), divided

Hid and Salih, Isaac, Jakob, Joseph, Job, and Shu‘aib ;

from Egypt; of Karin, Harun, ete. 

Tabakah TI. The Kayanian dynasty (on fol. 35») from 
Kaikubad to Dara ibn Dârâb ر(داراب الاصغر)‎ intermixed 
with tales of Elias, Elisa, Samuel, Saul, David, Solomon, 
and Balkis, queen of Sheba (on ff. 362-42») ; of Pytha- 
goras, Rehoboam, Asa, and the following kings of 
Israel (on ff. 47b—48b); of Alexander the Great, of the 
prophet Zechariah, the Virgin Mary, John the Baptist, 
and Jesus Christ. 

Tabakah 111. The Ashkanian dynasty (on fol. 58b), 
i.e. Arsacides from Ashk ibn Dârâb to Ardawân; the 
kings of Rüm and Syria (on fol. 59%); the seven sleepers 
(on fol. 59%); Jonah, Samson, St. George. 

Tabakah IV. The Sâsânian dynasty (on fol. 63>) 
from Ardashir ibn Babak to Yazdajird.

Fol. 292%. Babar. 

Fol. 2932. Humâyün; the last date which occurs is 
A.H. 957. The last is a report of his coming to Kabul 
and paying a visit to the grave of his father Babar. 

Regarding the author we have to make the following 
statements : 

a, After having reported the death of Shah Ismail, 
A.H. 930, he says that Shah Tahmasp ruled over Shir- 
win, Âdharbaijân, Fars, 'Irâk-i-Ajam, “Irâk-i “Arab, 
and most of Khurâsân at the time when he wrote this. 
See fol. 25637 ۰ 

b. Humâyün (died A.H. 963) was still alive when this 
was written ; as to his name, there is always added 
الله ملکه‎ oie. 

Accordingly we get the years A.H. 951-963= 
A.D. 1544-1556 as the time during which this chro- 
nicle was finished. However, there is some evidence 
which induces us to suppose that the author did not 
write at a later time than A.H. 958; for in enumerating 
the sons of Akbar (on fol. 2934) he makes the usual 
additions to the name of Humâyün, the then emperor, 
but none whatever to the names of his three brothers, 
Kamran, ‘Askari, and Hindal. 

Now, as regards Kamran and ‘Askari, this would not 
be surprising, since they were mostly in rebellion against 
their brother the emperor, whose loyal subject the 
author was. Hindal, however, fell in the year A.H. 958, 

gallantly fighting for the emperor against the tribe 
Khalil ; and if our author had written after this event, 
it would have been extremely disloyal not to add to 
Hindal’s name an 333, alll ,انار‎ or some similar 
phrase. Comp. Elphinstone, Hibe of India, 5th 
edition, p. 470. 

This chronicle, though on the whole too brief, is very 
remarkable for its particulars and its accuracy in the 
chronological part. Some of the works and authors

General history. 

A work on general Muhammadan history till the 
beginning of the eleventh century. Neither its title 
nor its author’s name is to be found anywhere, the first 
leaves being wanting. It appears to have been com- 
posed during Jahangir’s reign, since it concludes with 
A.H, 1020=A.D. 1611, on fol. 370% (370? being left 
blank). 

The MS. opens in the middle of a very disordered 


سلاطین دست راست )2( نفر 33,3( and confused index‏ 
ms) and‏ خواقین ولایت دست چب چهل و نه نفر آلخ 


its materials are arranged in the following manner : 
Till fol. 226 each principal section begins without a 
heading, only with the word ,ذکر‎ and contains several 
subdivisions, styled ,طبقه‎ 33,5, jos, Ob, 5, ete. 
This whole part, we suppose, is the first book (باب اول)‎ 
of the work; see here a detailed table of contents : 

Ancient patriarchs and prophets, on fol. 3%, beginning 
with SLs (after fol. 2 a lacuna). 


The early kings of Persia, in four tabakât, on fol. 74. 

The kings of Babylon and Syria, of the Jews, and 
of the Greeks, on fol. 162. 

The Himyarites, Ethiopians, the kings of Yaman, 
the Ghassanians, and the Banfi Lakhm, on fol. 238. 

The Turks from Yâfet, on fol. 28», 

Muhammad, the first four Khalifs and the twelve 
Imâms, on fol. 320.

Akbar on fol. 322», Jahangir on fol. 366. This 
book ends with the year 1020—A.D. 1611. 

After a blank page begins on fol. 371 a new fasl, 
which probably belongs to a third book, containing the 
history of the Safawi dynasty; it closes in the com- 
mencement of the reign of Shah ‘Abbas, A.H. 998= 
A.D. 1590. Therefore, we suppose, the author died a 
little after A.H. 1020, before he could continue the 
history of the Safawis down to the same point where 
he had broken off the description of Jahangir’s 
exploits. 

The proper order of the leaves from ff. 363 to 369 is 
this: 363, 365, 364, 367, 366, 368, 369. 

Mirkhond’s Raudat-alsafa is very often quoted in 
this work. Not dated; it may be that this copy is the 
author's autograph, the missing parts of which have 
been supplied later.

Faşl IX (fol. rogb), in five tâifas: On Timür and his 
successors, on the tribes of Karâ-koyunlü and Ak- 
koyunli, on the Safawis, on the Shaibâniyyah 
dynasty of Turkistân till Sayyid Abü-alfadl Khan, 

Conclusion (خاتي)‎ on fol. 2962, On the author him- 
self. On fol. 297% occur the following two notes: YALİ 
çi خلص‎ gl. معصوم‎ Bile اوراق شکسته ودسته سيٌد‎ 
اتمام انم کلا‎ 

From this note we learn that this copy was made bya 
Sayyid Hafiz Ma'şüm with the Takhallus Saki, and that 
the date of the completion of the work itself is em- 
bodied in the words خاتمة کلام‎ (i.e. 1137). 

Then follows another note on fol. 297P: is قد فرغ من‎

Accordingly this copy was finished on Wednesday, 
the 5th Rabi‘ I (N.B. Exactly the same day when the 
author finished his work) ; the year, however, when this 
took place is not mentioned. Secondly, this copy was 
made for one Kipdâk-Khân Bahadur (probably the 
author himself). 

We think it most likely that these two notes are 
simply transferred from an older MS., and must 
remark that these two volumes bear in all externals 
(as paper, writing, etc.) the greatest likeness to those 
copies, made by ‘Abd-alrazzik (comp. Ouseley 53, 
166, etc.) 

On ff. 297-302 follows an account of A.H. 1138, 
dated the 27th Shawwâl, A.H. 1138—A.D. 1726, the 
28th June.

Subhan Kuli-Khan, ruler of Turkistân, whose Kaus- 
Begi the author's father was, died A.H.1114—A.D.1702. 
We learn from the preface and conclusion the following 
particulars regarding the author’s life: He was a native 
of Balkh, came to India A.H. 1107, and resided at Lâhür, 
where he was in connection with ‘Abd-alsamad Khan, 
governor of the Panjab under the emperor Farrukhsiyar 
about A.H. 1125; he was from his early days given up 
to reading old chronicles, and resolved to compose this 
book, which he finished A.H. 1137, the 5th Rabi‘ I= 
A.D. 1724, November, after six years’ work (vol. TI, 
fol. 296; vol. I, fol. 3%). He does not give a review of 
his sources; in vol. IT, fol. 296>, he mentions the 
Ta'rikh-i-Firüzshâhi, by Diya Barni.

the history of the Moghul emperors down to Ah-‏ 
madshah (deposed 1167), “Alamgir II (died 1173), and‏ 
Shah ‘Alam, who reigned when the author wrote.‏ 
Probably the same illness is the reason that he did‏

fourteen years after having commenced it, and eleven‏ 
years after having written the memoir on ‘Ali Hazin in‏ 
the last part of the conclusion.‏ 

Although this work (especially in the first volume) 
is very brief and comprehensive, and the single dynas- 
ties usually occupy only one or two leaves, it is very 
remarkable for its extremely accurate chronology and 
its particular notices on the learned men, poets, etc. of 
the single epochs. More detailed are the second and 
third volume, the latter of which is written totally on 
the basis of Firishta’s famous History of India, agreeing 
with that in the whole arrangement and even in the 
single phrases. The biographical dictionary of poets at 
the end is a valuable enrichment of the list of tadh- 
kiras given in Sprenger’s Catal. Oudh.

Fragments of an anonymous general history. 

Some confusedly-mixed fragments of a universal 
history, without title or introduction. Most of the 
dates are omitted. There is no strict chronological 
order in the single pieces; for instance, the MS. begins 
with the year of the Rihlat 135 (see No. 99)=A. D. 762, 
on fol. 1», but on fol. 2b there occurs already A.H. 329= 
A.D. 940; ff. 14>-22 contain a part of Cingizkhan’s 
history down to A.H. 683 —A.D. 1284; parts of the his- 
tory of the first Ghaznawide and Saljfikide Sultans are 
found on 101: 22۳ sq.; Sultân Sanjar’s exploits are related 
on fol. 50> sq.; the wazir Nizâm-almulk and the year 
485=A. D. 1092 occur on fol. 64>; the history of the 
Khwarizmshah Atsiz bin Muhammad is found on fol. 
87; on fol. 93» the death of Abü-alkâsim Mahmüd bin 
‘Umar bin Muhammad Zamakhshari, the author of the 
Kashshaf, in A, H. 538—A.D. 1143, is mentioned; two 
pages further on, on fol. 94, we find the year 462= 
A.D. 1069, etc. ete. 

The chief authority to which the unknown author of 
these fragments refers is the Ta'rikh-i-Ibn Athir ; see, 
for instance, fol. 164, Il. 15 and 16; fol. 29», 1. 22; fol.

۱: see fol. 32, 1. 5 abinfra; fol.3b,1.15; fol. 3975); 
the first part (fol. 3, 1. 158-494, 1. 3 ab infra) was trans- 
lated into Persian by Muhammad b. Ahmad Almustaufi 
Alharawi (fol. 3», 1. 3; fol. 49», 1. 4) after ۸۰۲۲, 596= 
A.D. 1199, chiefly encouraged and assisted by a noble- 
man of Khwârizm and Khurâsân (fol. 2a, 1.13; fol. 
49>, 1. 1), whom he loads with epithets without giving 
his name; the names of other friends of his he enume- 
rates on fol. 32. The whole remaining part was translated 
by Muhammad b. Ahmad b. Abi Bakr Alkatib Alma- 
barnabadi (see fol. 49, 1. 21; fol. 2, 1. 4, this latter 
passage is corrupt, likewise in Ous. 170, fol. 24, 1. 8). 
He states in a special report, on fol. 494-500, that 
Almustaufi died (fol. 49>, 1. 13), that he was asked to 
complete the work on different principles, viz. simpli- 
fying the style and omitting a great deal of the poetry 
of the Arabic original (see fol. 50%, Il. 6-8), and that he 
continued the work where Almustaufi had left it. Title

H. Khalfa mentions this work, its author and first 
translator, in two places: iv. pp. 380 and 385. In the 
former he states that Abü Muhammad wrote his work 
A.H. 1003=A.D. 1594, which isa very strange mistake. 
Of the translator he does not give any date. 

Almustaufi relates in the preface (fol. 2», 11. 10 sq.) 
that he met with his generous protector A.H. 596= 
A.D. 1199, and accompanied him to Züzan, a district 
between Harât and Nishâpür, after which he began with 
his translation.

This note shows—(1) that this MS. (at least that part 
from the beginning till the end of the second book) was 
derived from a copy which was corrected and revised 
by the author himself, a.u. 866, the first Rabi'— 
A.D. 1461, December; (2) that, in consequence, this 
same portion was composed before A. H. 866 (see quite 
a contrary statement in Rieu i. p. 149).

No. 363 is stated (by the same hand), that this copy 
was made by order of one اغلان‎ \ (Bairâm

An extract from the Raudat-alshuhadâ, or rather an 
abridgment of the original work, differing from that in 
many respects, and also from the copy in Rieu i. p. 155. 

The first majlis on fol. 1b, os در بیان ابتلای آدم‎

ponds to the preface and the first half of the first bâb. 
It begins somewhat like the original work, ای 3,5« وجرد‎

Elliot 313. 

The second majlis on fol. 16%, ابتلای‎ Lisl در زمرة‎

the second half of the first bâb in the Raudat-alshuhadâ 
(Elliot 313, fol. 258,1. 4, to fol. 4gb, 1. 11). From the 
rest of the first and the whole of the second bab no 
extracts are to be found at all in this abridgment.

A work of similar character as the Dah Majlis, and 
based, as it seems, for its chief parts also on the Raudat- 
alshuhadâ, beginning: ... ای احد قدیم وای صمد واجب‎ 


.وای قادرلم یزل ولا یزال الهی +عرمت ذات قدیمت BI‏ 

It treats of the martyrdom of prophets and saints, 
especially of Muhammad, ‘Ali, and the martyrs of Kar- 
bala, Hasan, Husain, ete. ete. It is also divided into 
several majlis : 

The first majlis is not marked at all, and seems to 
be a kind of preliminary discourse on the troubles of 
all prophets ete, since Adam. 

The second majlis contains the story of Muhammad’s 
death, on fol. 148 الرسلین)‎ a (در وفات‎ that is to say, 
the same as the third bab of the Raudat and the third 
majlis of the Dah Majlis. 

The third majlis gives an account of Fatimah and 
her death, on fol. 384 (1,2; ز(در وفات فاطمة‎ comp. the 
fourth bab of the Raudat and the fourth of the Dah 
Majlis. 

The fourth majlis relates ‘Ali’s martyrdom, on fol. 
54۶ طالب)‎ ol مقتل امیر الومنین علی بن‎ ,3), corres- 
ponding to the fifth bâb of the Raudat and the fifth of 
the Dah Majlis. 

The fifth majlis tells us how Hasan died as martyr, 
ony 01 ۳ 1 امن حسن در‎ all مععل‎ 95) 
comp. the sixth bab of the Raudat and the sixth of the 
Dah Majlis. 

The following chapters are not styled رمجلس‎ but

Abi Talib’s death در مقتل مسلم عقیل و کتابت نوشتن)‎ 
امل عراق وارسال نمودن امام حسین مسلم را بکوفه و‎

Abridgment of the Zafar-nâma,

the emperor Jahangir, to whom this abridgment of the 
Zafar-nâma is dedicated ; comp. Elliot, History of India,

date of composition are found here on fol. 2», Il. 13 and

the reason for making this paraphrase, which is enriched 
from other sources.

omissions, chiefly of poetry, but also of less important 
passages in the prose part. In every other respect 
this text agrees verbo tenus with the Zafar-nâma. 

The 0 does not give his name; the title 
occurs on fol. 68, 1.12. The work is divided into a 
mukaddimah (introduction) and three makâlât, in accor- 
dance with the original. We do not find this work

Part I: ۰ 

A history of the Moghul race, beginning with Adam, 
deriving the Moghuls from Yâfet, and expounding the 
genealogy and history of Cingizkhân, Timür, and their 
descendants, particularly of the Moghul emperors of 
India as far down as Muhammad Shah, A.H. 1131— 
1161—A.D. 1719-1748, with especial regard to all the 
notorious princes of this dynasty. 

The author is Hâji Mir Muhammad Salim (fol. 3», 
1. 13), who dedicated his work to Muhammad Shah 
(fol. 32, lin. pen., Abü-alfath Nasir-aldin Muhammad 
Shah). He relates in the preface (fol. 49) that he left 
his native country A.H. 1123 —A.D. 1711; first he 
went to Persia, where he was recommended by some 


preface, two sections (sJlix), ten chapters (WL), and 
an epilogue; but of this division nothing is found in 
the text; moreover the copy is incomplete at the end.

with the history of the Khan of the Uzbegs, Sadr

of the book. 

This work (part TI) has a great likeness to the $535

tremely valuable, giving minute information about a 
period of eastern history which is comparatively little 
known. This part is collated throughout, and has a

by the same hand which wrote the whole.

Wâki'ât-i-Bâbari (spb .(واقعات‎ 

The memoirs of the emperor Babar, extending from 
A.H. 899-935 =A.D. 1493-1528 (not without consider- 
able intermissions), originally composed in Caghatâi, 
afterwards translated into Persian. They were rendered 
into English by J. Leyden and W. Erskine in ‘ Memoirs 
of Zehir-ed-din Muhammed Baber,’ London, 1826; 2nd 
ed. 1844, and by M. Caldecott, ‘ Life of Baber, abridged 
from the Memoirs of Zehir-ed-din Muhammed Baber,’ 
London, 1844; see “A Critical Essay, pp. 36, 58, 
Hammer-Purgstall, Geschichte der schénen Redekiinste 
Persiens, p. 372. A Latin translation is mentioned in 
“Das Asiatische Museum,’ by B. Dorn, م‎ 121; H. Khalfa 
vi. p. 420. The original Caghatâi text of these memoirs 
has been published by Ilminski, Kasan, 1857; and an 
excellent French translation of that was made by Pavet 
de Courteille, ‘ Mémoires de Baber,’ Paris, 1871, in two 
vols, 

This translation consists of two different parts, which 
are wrongly bound, so that the second part occupies 
ff. 16-1602; the first, ff. ۲63-2۰ 

The first part (ff. 1632-231») comprises the years 
A.H. 899-906, and corresponds in Erskine’s translation 
to pp. 1-94, 1. 24 (‘remained in the fortress,’ در قلعه‎ 
sl), beginning: مخفی ومستور‎ ple ارباب‎ pies 2 

.نماند که حضرت پادشاه فردوس ی دت اسان JI‏ 

Then follows, on ff. 231>-232, a short enumeration 
(of the translator?) of those years not recorded by 
Babar himself. 

The second part (ff. 2, 1. 3 ab inf. to 160») gives the 
years 906-935, corresponding to Erskine, p. 94, I. 21 
(€ send off his family with his effects and people to Ura- 
tippa,’ اوراتېه فرستاده‎ wks متعلقان خودرا‎ Gleb ,(شيرم‎ 
till p. 422, line 5. 

Accordingly there is something wanting at the end 
of this copy‘ (Erskine, p. 422, line 6, to p. 425); besides 
(on fol. 125%) the years A. H. 925 to 932 (Erskine, p. 272, 
line 25, to p. 343), and the end of the years A.H. 933 
and 934 (Erskine, p. 353, line 12, to p. 382), between 
ff. 131 and 132. Vice versa we find on ff. 1014, line 7, 
till 103, after the fragment of A.H. 914 (Erskine, 
۲۰ 235), a chapter which we do not find in Erskine’s 
translation. 

To the second part is prefixed a preface, on ff. اعدا‎ 
line 13, stating that the first part was translated by 
Shaikh Zain (fol. ıb, 1.1.), or Mirza Banida Hasan 
Ghaznawi Farisi (fol. 2b, line 2, میرزا بانیده حسن‎ 
ر(غزنوی فارسی‎ at the command of Mu'in-aldin Bihrüz- 
khân, a descendant of Muhammad Khân Bahâdur Beg

the first handwriting, stating that the last portion (2-5), 
regarding the events of A.H. 935, was not found in that MS., 
from which this was copied.

died A.H. 963=A.D. 1556). eae

Ff. 1496-3092. The second part of the first book, 
containing the history of the emperor Akbar from his 
accession to the throne down to the seventeenth year of 


his reign (see fol. 299%, 1. 17 sq.) This year closes on

HISTORY. 


109 
حسب الطاقت صرف همت نموده بتقصير رافی نشده 


After this there follows a continuation on ff. 310, 
11.3, to 351, giving a brief account of the death of Akbar, 
of Jahângir's succession, of the enthronization of Shâh- 
jahan, A. H. 1037 (fol. 345); then the dates when the 
princes Dara Shuküh, Shujâ', Aurangzib, and Murâd 
were born; and, lastly, the same concerning the 
brothers of Shâhjahân, the princes Shâh Murâd, Daniel, 
Khusrau, Parwiz (along with the date of his death, 
A.H. 1036); of the blinding of Kâmrân Mirzâ, the 
brother of Humâyün, A.H. 961; and of the birth of 
prince Khânam ,(خانم)‎ A. 1 977. 

This continuation, the author of which is not stated’, 
consists of little more than dates. The latest date 
which we find is A.H. 1044 (on fol. 334)=A.D. 1634. 
Accordingly we are at liberty to suppose that this 
addition was made by ‘Abd-alhakk himself, since he was 
still alive A.H. 1047 (according to Rieu i. p. 14, he died 
A.H.1052). The style of this work is highly distinguished 
from that of almost all similar compositions: it is en- 
tirely free from the usual bombast; precise, without 
being obscure ; simple, without being dry. 

Comp. besides Bibliogr. Index, p. 281sq., and Rieu 1. 
p- 224, about Nür-alhakk, who literally quoted his father و‎ 
and W. Morley, pp. 62, 63.

after the time of its composition, and is very correct.

ought to have been immediately joined to the preceding 
lines (comp. Elliot 44, fol. 302), there is a large portion 
of history, not in its right place. These interpolated 
and confused pieces belong to the second book of the 
Akbar-nâma, and their order is as follows:

words نای کردد‎ and آغاز سال‎ on fol. 198, 1. 4 (agreeing 
with Elliot gb, fol. 2b, 1. 6, and fol. 142, 1. 9), so that 
there are wanting only three unimportant lines.

to Elliot 49, fol. 302», 1 4; it breaks off on fol. 185),

a. The month Muharram, A.H. 1079=A.D. 1668, 
June, as the date when this work was finished.

Tt seems to be collated throughout ; the exterior of 
the MS. perfectly well admits of an age of from 200 to 
300 years. The only place where we find this work

Lubb-altawârikh التواردږ)‎ J). 

A general history “of the Muhammadan dynasties of 
India, imperfect at the beginning and end, but un- 
doubtedly—as a comparison with Elliot, History of 
Tndia, vii. p. 168, shows, and the title given to it on the 
fly-leaves and in the colophon corroborates—identical 
with the Lubb-altawârikh-i-Hind, by Bindraban, son 
of Rai Bhârâmal; comp, also Rieu i. p. 228. 

In the MS, we have to distinguish between an old part 
and later additions, apparently made with the view of 
giving the MS. the appearance of a complete work ; 
they are made at random, not very judiciously, and are 
gathered from different sources. The author of these 
additions cannot be acquitted of the charge of fraud, as 
he has in several places put at the bottom of the pages 
those words which are a general mark of the connection, 
whilst there is in fact no connection whatever. This 
seems to betray that he calculated to take in hasty 
readers, or to sell a fragment of a chronicle as a com- 
plete work. 

We shall first describe the genuine part, which begins 
with the inroads of the Moghuls under ‘Ala-aldin Khilji

peror Kutb-aldin Muhammad Abü-alnaşr Shah “Alam 
Bahadurshah (see this complete name, fol. 1 1b, 1. 10), Au- 
rangzib’s son, who ruled A.H.1119—1124—A.D. 1707— 
1712, written by Mukarrabkhan, called Danishmand- 
khan (as a note on fol. 18 relates). This is the same 
author who is also well known as a poet under the title 
of Ni‘matkhan (see A. Sprenger, Catal., p.328,and Rieu 1. 
p- 272). His name was originally Nür-aldin Muhammad, 
of a Shiraz family, and his takhallus ‘Ali. This history 
of Bahadur is detailed in the highest degree, narrating 
events from month to month, sometimes even from day to 
day, and gives a great quantity of most interesting special 
notices on the little events of the imperial court and the 
great and important transactions and deeds of Bahadur. 
It opens with his accession to the throne (the ta'rikh on 
fol. 129, 1, 12, gives the date as A. H. 1119—A.D. 1707, 
امد‎ AS رحمت‎ ale (در‎ and the civil war between 
the three brothers. Beginning the same as in Aumer:

On fol. 136b begins the second year of Bahâdurshâh's 


reign, the first day of which is fixed here on the Ist of 
Dhü-alhijjah (1 gth Asfandâr), A.H.1120—A.D.1708: 48

On the concluding page (fol. 245%, 1. 7 sg.), the 


author eulogises the emperor, that in such a short space 
of time, during two years, he gloriously has measured 
the long way from Pishawar to Haidarâbâd از پيشاور)‎

years of his reign have been described is sufficiently 
accounted for by the author’s death in ۵, H. 1121=A.D, 
1709; see A. Sprenger, Catal., p. 328; Elliot, History 
of India, vii. p. 568, where this work is styled “Ta'rikh- 
i-Shâh ‘Alam Bahâdur Shah.’ 

This copy is not dated at the end, but on fol. 1 there 
is a very carelessly written notice, which appears to fix 
the date in A.H. 1161=A.D. 1748.

Muntakhab-allubâb اللباب)‎ os), 

Part of the well-known history of the Moghul em- 
perors of India, composed by Muhammad Hashim “Ali- 
khan, who is commonly called Khâfikhân, and entitled 
Muntakhab-allubab, or Ta'rikh-i-Muntakhab, or simply 
Ta'rikh-i-Khâfikhân; comp. Rieu 1, p. 232. As Morley, 
p- 100, and Nassau Lees, Materials, p. 465 sq., state, Kha- 
fikhan wrote his work, containing a complete history of 
the house of Timür, in the last years of Aurangzib’s 
reign, but did not publish it until A.H. 1145 =A. ۰ 
1732, after having brought it down to the fourteenth 
year of Muhammadshâh's reign. There seem to be 
different redactions of this ta'rikb, as we conclude 
both from a remark of Nassau Lees, who says, on fol. 
4688, “No two copies that I have met with are 
exactly alike, while some present such dissimilarities as 
almost to warrant the supposition that they are distinct 
works,’ and from the great difference existing in the 
arrangement of the single copies known to us. Accord- 
ing to Morley the ta'rikh is subdivided into three 
portions, the first of which goes down to A.H. 1067, the 
second to 1118, the third to 1145. But this copy and 
the two following ones, too, are styled in the preface the 
second volume (4 ab ثانی‎ ste), chiefly com- 
prising the history of two~hundred lunar years, viz. from 
Bâbar's occupation of India, A.K. 932 (the thirty-third 
year of his reign), till A.u.1133 (the third year of the 
reign of Muhammadshâh). The first volume, which is 
wanting in all our Bodleian copies, contains, as we 
learn from the beginning of the preface of this second

Contents : 

The first and second volume together correspond to 
Morley’s first volume, and contain the history of the 
Moghul empire from A.H. 1118 to 1152 (see this date, 
vol. i, fol. 2362 sg.), the twenty-second year of Muham- 
madshah’s reign; a detailed account of the affairs of 
Bangalah down to 1195; and a concluding chapter on 
Mubarak-aldaulah, the English government in Bangâlah, 
etc, ete. The second volume opens with the year 1170 
(in the Bangâlah history). 

The third volume corresponds to Morley’s second 
volume, and continues the history of the Moghuls from 
1153 to 1195. To each volume a detailed index is 
prefixed, but that of the first is incomplete at the end, 
and that of the second incomplete at the beginning.

A very valuable and detailed history of the reign of 
“Alâ-aldunyah wa aldin Abâ-almuzaffar Mahmudshah 
Sultân alkhilji, the king of Mâlwah, over which -he 
ruled from the 2gth of Shawwal, a. ۰ 839=A.D. 1436,

the Rise, ete., London, 1829, vol. iv. pp. 195-235, by 
‘Ali ibn Mahmid alkirmani, with the epithet Shihab 
Hakim, who was in the service of Mahmüdshâh, and 
wrote this work after the king’s death at the command 
of his son and successor Sultân Ghiyâth-aldunyah wa 
aldin Muhammad, A.H. 873-906. This work is the 
more important as there are not to be found in any 
catalogue other special histories of the dynasty of Mal- 
wah and particularly of Mahmüdshâh; on the other 
hand, this is perhaps the only copy we have got of it. 
It is a little defective at the beginning, one or two 
leaves of the preface being wanting. It opens with the 
words در‎ SG ee شناختش بی تشبیه و تمثیل‎ 
Fi «حکمت بالغه زمر جانربای يا ترياك رو افزای‎ 

After the introduction, which contains a long kaşidah 
in honour of the late Makmüdshâh, the work itself 
begins with a summary of the events which preceded 
Mahmüd's accession to the throne, especially under 
Sultân Hüsbang (A.H. 808-835) and Muhammadshah

History of the ‘Adilshahs of Bijâpür and some of 
the contemporary minor dynasties of India, especially 
the Bahmanis of the Dakhan, the kings of Gujarat, the 
Nizâmshâhis of Ahmadnagar and the Kutbshahis of 
Gulkundah, together with a comprehensive account of 
the Moghul emperors Babar, Humâyün and Akbar, and 
the Safawi kings of Persia from Tahmâsp to ‘Abbas the 
Great, compiled by Rafi‘ of Shiraz (otherwise called 
Mir Rafi'-aldin Shirazi) at Bijâpür during the reign of 
the Shah Ibrahim ‘Adilshah bin Shah Tahmâsp bin 
Shah Ibrahim, who reigned from A.H. 488 to 1036—A.n. 
1580-1626. The author was born ۸:1۰ 947 —A.D.1540, 
and from his twentieth year was in the service of the 
“Adilshâhs, at first in Shah “Ali's, and later on in Shah 
Ibrâhim's. In his seventieth year, A.H. 1017 (in the 
month Ramadan)=a.p, 1608, December, after having 
been occupied for a longer time with compiling an 
abridgment of general history from the first six yolumes 
of Mirkhwând's Raudat-alşafâ and the seventh volume 
of Khwandamir’s Habib-alsiyar (this means, probably, 
the fourth chapter of the third volume of that work), 
he began this very instructive but somewhat confusedly 
arranged history, and completed it after three years’ 
hard labour, as it seems, A.H. 1020—A.D. 1611, for 
this date is the last which occurs; see fol. 216», last 
line. It is quoted as one of his principal sources by

Accordingly our copy does not extend as far as 
Riew’s, which concludes with Mir Muhammad Ja'far-

less accurately, with the report about the same period, 
given in Siyar-almuta'akhkhirin (pp. av—-14., Calcutta 
ed. A.H. 1248—A.D. 1832). As very often even the 
wording is identical with this latter work, we suppose 
that it is an extract from it.

A history of the Safawi king, Shah “Abbâs the 
second, who ruled over Persia A. H. 1052-1077 =A.D. 
1642-1666, from his birth to the fourteenth or fifteenth 
year of his reign, by the well-known poet Mirza Muham- 
mad Tahir Wahid ibn Mirzâ Husainkhân Kazwini, who 
was the historiographer of Shah ‘Abbas IT; he rose to 
the dignity of Wazir under his successor Shah Sulaiman, 
and died, nearly a hundred years old, A.H. 1110— 
A.D. 1698, according to the Khulâşat-alafkâr, Elliot 
181, fol. 315; and the Makhzan-algharaib, Elliot 395, 
fol. 493%; others fix his death at a much later date, see 
Rieu i. p. 189. Another title of the same work seems 
to be عباس نامع‎ : comp. Sprenger in the Manuscripts of 
the late Sir H. Elliot, Journal of the As. Soc. of Bengal,

larger work on the Safawi kings generally, styled 
e uel): 

This history of Shah “Abbâs II begins (after an 
elaborate preface) with the king’s birth, which is fixed 
here in A.H. 1041; see fol. و108‎ 1. 1, and a short account 
of the first years of his life. His accession to the 
throne, the 11th of Safar, A.H. 1052, is related on fol.

That seems to be the title of this incomplete history

by Muhammad Tâhir ibn Muhammad Yüsuf Kazwini 
(see fol. 2», Il. 4-6), and comprising, as far as this copy 
goes, two babs or chapters.

Şafawi kings, the ancestors of Shâh “Abbâs the second 
(reigned A.H. 1052-1077 —A.D. 1642—1666), to whom 
this work is dedicated, and whose court-officer the 
author must have been, from Safi-alhakk wa-alhakikat 
wa-aldin Ishak, the founder of the dynasty (on fol. 28D), 
down to A.H. 985, the year of Isma'il Mirzâ's death 
(see Sultân Sadr-aldin, on fol. 3ıb; Sultan Khwâjah 
‘Ali, on fol. 33%; Sultân Shaikh Ibrahim, on fol. 362;

on fol. 77>; Isma'il Mirzâ's reign, on fol. 1735), Here 
the copy breaks off, and all the rest is wanting. 

The author's chief object, when he began his work, 
was, there is no doubt, a history of his sovereign, 
‘Abbas IT himself, to which the account of his ancestors 
should only form an introduction ; but whether he ever 
finished his task or not, we cannot decide.

is given thus: 


Concerning the time of the author, we have to notice 
that he states himself to have returned from Baghdâd 
A.H. 606 (fol. 1); secondly, that he was acquainted 
with Husâm-aldaulah Ardashir, who died a.H. 602 ; and 
that in the middle of his work he gives A.m. 613 as 
the time when he wrote (fol. 59). The very latest 
date which one could assume for the author's death 
would seem to be about A. H. 630-640. Here, however, 
arises the difficulty already pointed out by B. Dorn 
(p. 6), that in the work itself events of a much later 
date are mentioned. The death of Fakhr-aldaulah 
Hasan (A.H. 750) is reported on fol. 224», and the last 
of the short chronological notes, appended at the end, 
gives the date A.H. 842. The work must have been 
continued by some one else, to whom the greater part 
of the fourth book must be attributed. The first date 
beyond the author's time seems to occur on fol. 213۳ 
ll. 3, 4, A.E. 658, when Isfahbad Shah Ghazi Rustam 
died ; the heading of the chapter is درد ذکر وفات اصفېبد‎ 
الک‎ ery .شاه غازی رستم‎ However, in the following 
part there may still be chapters from the pen of Mu- 
hammad bin Alhasan’, or, at least, taken from his papers; 
for instance, the chapter on Husâm-aldaulah Ardashir 
(fol. 2153), A.H. 567-602.

This work is said to be the first Turkish history ever 
written ; it is of great value and of rare occurrence, since 
there are as yet known to exist in European libraries 
only two complete copies of the Persian original, besides 
our own, viz. in the British Museum and in Upsala. 
At the beginning there is something wanting, probably 
one leaf, but fortunately nothing of any importance. 
Besides a few words are wanting on ff. 162 and 440. 

Tt contains an introduction and eight books : 

Introduction, on fol. 3°, beginning: بر‎ de از‎

Fourth book, on fol.185b. History of Bayazid I(+ 805).

Sixth book, on fol.3orb. History of Murâd IT (+ 855). 

Seventh book, on fol. 378b, History of Muhammad II

This MS. consists of two parts: a. Introduction and 
the first seven books; 6. The eighth book. According 
to the colophon on fol. 4862 the first part was copied by 
“Ali bin ‘Abd-alghalib bin'Inâyat-allâh bin ‘Ali Alfirüzâ- 
badi, and finished on Tuesday, the 7th of Rabi‘-alawwal, 
A.H. 1074=A.D. 1663, the gth of October. 

The second part was finished A.H. 1110, in Rabi 
alawwal=a.D. 1698, September ; see the colophon on 
fol. 6422. 

The whole MS. is in complete preservation. The

is different from all the histories enumerated by Wilson, 
Newall, Rieu, ete. It begins with the well-known story 
of the drainage of the water from the valley of Kashmir 
or Satisaras, on fol. 3. The pre-Muhammadan epoch 
comprises ff. 3b—35, the post-Muhammadan the rest. 
At the beginning a part of the preface is missing.

Another work of the same title, containing a history 
of Kashmir from the earliest ages down to its conquest 
by the emperor Akbar, compiled from the same old 
Kashmirian chronicle of Râjatarangini and other 
authentic documents, by Haidar ibn Hasan Malik ibn 
Kamal-aldin Malik Muhammad Nâji of Cârwarah, 
between A.H. 1027 and 1030= A.D. 1618-1621. The 
author, a native of Kashmir and descendant of one of 
the principal families of this country, dedicated his 
work to the emperor Jahangir; comp. Rieu i. p. 297, 
and J. Aumer, p. 98, where, by a mere mistake, it is 
ascribed to the grandfather, Kamâl-aldin, instead of the 
grandson, Haidar Malik.

An abridged history of Kashmir from the oldest

date, which occurs on fol. 1299, 1 4), compiled at the 
request of Jalâl-aldin Malik Muhammad Nâji ibn 
Malik Nusrat, by Hasan bin ‘Ali of Kashmir, and 
founded, as we believe, like all the following histories 
of Kashmir, on the original Sanskrit work of Râjata- 
rangini, for which we refer to H. 11. Wilson, ‘An Essay 
on the Hindi History of Cashmir,’ Asiatic Researches,

son of Maulawi Muhammad A‘zam Kül, known as

see besides fol. gb, 1. 4; fol. 102, 11. 5 and ۰ 

The author Mun‘imi (fol. 1۹,1. 1) states in the 
preface, on fol. 7>, that in his work the history of 
Khwajah Muhammad A‘zam, the son of Khair-alzamân 
Khan, which bears the title واقعات کی‎ (contained in 
the preceding copy), is reproduced with very few altera- 
tions ; see ff. band 7>. ‘The author of the latter work, 
we suppose, is Mun‘imi’s father, though he does not 
say so. 

He represents, like all his predecessors, the Rajataran- 
gini as the source of all Kashmirian history ; itwas trans- 
lated and, together with information derived from other 
sources, edited by Mulla Husain Kâdiri, and after him 
by Haidar Malik Hawar (حيدرملك حاور)‎ See fol. 6۳, 
1.7, and ll. 14, 15 (comp. No. 316). Besides he quotes 
another work on Kashmirian history, composed by Nür- 
aldin Wali, ‘in Kashmiri,’ بزیان کسمبری‎ (see fol. 7 ult. ; 
fol. 82, 1. 4 sg.); it is called .ور نامه‎ A learned Kash- 
mirian, Maulânâ Ahmad, a contemporary of Sultân

into an introduction ر(مقدمه)‎ three parts ,(قسم)‎ and a

That this latter chapter is not an appendix, but 
belongs’ originally to the work, can be proved from the 
sixth chapter (ثنای ششم)‎ of the preface, where he 
promises to give a refutation of the Râfidis at the end 
of the work, on account of its being too large to be 
contained in a chapter of the introduction (fol. gb, ll. 1, 2). 
To this announcement he refers back at the beginning 
of the last chapter, fol. 61°, 1, 10. 

The author sometimes quotes verses in Pushtü. The 
Arabic hymn, with Pushtü translation, which, according 
to Dr. Dorn’s statement, occurs at the end of the book, 
is not to be found in this copy.

He was shot gallantly fighting for his country, and left 
behind him eleven sons, who, after long confinement at 
Lucknow, were at last set at liberty by orders of the 
English, and permitted to retire to their own country.’ 

On comparing this with the ‘ History of the Afghans, 
translated from the Persian of Neamet Ullah by B. Dorn, 
preface, p. xii, we are led to believe that this pedigree is 
excerpted and translated into English from the خلاصة‎ 
,الانساب‎ composed in Persian by Hafiz Rahmat bin Shah 
‘Alam. He was the ruler of Rohilkand since A,D.1749, 
and was killed in the battle of Kattarah, A.D. 1774, 
April 23, against the combined forces of the East-India 
Company and the Wazir of Oudh. Comp. K. F. Neu-

(ترجمة التکملت) Tarjumat-altakmilah‏ 


A collection of legends on eminent Muslims, dis- 
tinguished by piety and learning. From the preface 
we learn the following facts : 

Shaikh ‘Abdallah bin As‘ad Alyâfi'i Alyamani, who 
died A.H. 768 or 771=A.D. 1366 or 1369, composed 
two works in Arabic on the same subject: one called 
خلاصة الفاخرین‎ (or الفاخر‎ io, according to H. Khalfa 
ii. 160), chiefly relating to Shaikh “Abd-alkâdir Jilâni 
(who died ۸۰1۲, 561 —A.D. 1166); the other 0 
الصاطین‎ SLUG الریاحین فی‎ Ley, which is noticed 
by H. Khalfa iii. 488, and which was translated into 
Turkish by Surüri. To this latter work the same 
author composed a complement GL), and of this 
complement the present work is the Persian transla- 
tion. The translator first got acquainted with the 
original at Madinah, and he undertook the translation 
at the request of his teacher, (6,1 رستتد جلال الدین اوچه‎ 
and of several pious men of Yaman. The translator's 
name is not mentioned in the book itself. It contains 
200 legends (LIK). 

H. Khalfa, iii. 8r, mentions a Persian collection of 
legends of saints, رحکایات الصا ین‎ by Shaikh ‘Uthman 
bin ‘Umar Alkahf, divided into twenty babs, each bab 
of ten hikâyât (that is, 200 legends). Possibly our

he himself wrote besides the Nigâristân the Jahân-ârâ‏

Muhammad; and that he died on returning from the‏

The collation is written in a hand different from that

(c) A mass of other marginalia, which may have 
been written by Alghaffâri himself. They are super- 
scribed either ضابطه‎ (note, in which the pronunciation 
of a word is fixed), or sk»), (literally ‘ligature,’ here 
‘explanatory note’), or رتفسیر‎ or ترجم‎ (translation of

the Kurân verses into Persian). To all these notes is 
subscribed رم‎ by which we understand ‘originating 
from him,’ viz. the author of this book. 

These notes, we must add, do not form part of the 
common redaction; they are not found in No. 339. 
We suppose the author collated them in his autograph 
chiefly for his own information; likewise, perhaps, in 
order to prepare himself for making the final edition of 
his work. 

(d) Additional notes, further explanations or correc- 
tions of the facts told by Alghaffâri. They are all 
subscribed by سعید‎ ‘ Sa'id ;’ and this Sa'id is the same 
Muhammad Said of whom it is stated on the fly-leaf 
that he (a.H. 1142) got this book as a present (see 
above). Besides we have a statement of his on fol. 3°, 
under the text (small Shikasta), where he says that 
the author has sometimes made mistakes, and that he, 
the humble Sa'id (A. H. 1145), corrected them ; meaning 
by this, we suppose, his marginal notes, because the 
text of the present copy has not undergone any special 
alteration, but agrees entirely with the other copy, 
No. 339, which is dated A. H. 1077 (or 1078), therefore 


previous to Sa'id for a long time.

This agrees almost literally with Firishta’s report 
(see J. Briggs, History of the Rise, etc., vol. iii. 
pp. 236-239). It was either enlarged with some more 
details from Firishta, or taken from the Ta’rikh-i- 
Hakki by ‘Abd-alhakk Dihlawi (see No. 195 and W. 
Morley, p. 63, ll. 13,14). It corresponds almost literally 
with No. 245, ff. 2799-2812 (the following three leaves 
are additions, and relate to Aurangzib, not to the kings 
of Malwah); the report, however, in this chronicle is 
fuller than that of No. 245.

because there are guoted in the second makâlah, on fol.

.(جوامر العجائب) Jawahir-al'ajaib‏ 

A short extract, or rather an earlier sketch, of the 
valuable tadhkirah of poetesses, called gems of curiosi- 
ties, by Fakhri ibn Amir (or Amiri, according to 
Sprenger) of Harât, who probably wrote it at the court 
of the ruler of Sind, Muhammad “İsa Tarkhân (died 
A.H. 974=A.D. 1566); see a full account of it in 
A. Sprenger, Catal., pp. 9-11. 

This sketch contains the same twenty poetesses, as 
the larger work, described by Sprenger, and, it appears, 
one or two more. The initial bait, quoted as a chrono- 
gram by Sprenger, runs thus:

(اخبار الاخیار) Akhbâr-alakhyâr‏ 

A large biographical work on all the Saints, Shaikhs, 
learned and holy men of Zndia, from the conquest by 
the Muhammadans and the rise of the Islâm down to 
the end of the tenth century of the Hijrah, by 'Abd- 
alhakk bin Saif-aldin alturk aldihlawi albukhari, who, 
according to the khâtimah, completed this work after 
his journey to Hijâz, for which he had set out A.H. 996 
—A.D. 1588; comp. Rieu i. p. 355. Except the first 
shaikh and a few others, all the persons whose bio- 
graphies are given belong to India; and the author 
devoted his work to those exclusively, because there 
were in his time many books on shaikhs of Arabia, 
Persia, etc., but no book at all on the learned and wise 
men of India. According to the index on fol. 122 this 
work is divided into three tabakât: 1. The great 
Shaikh Muhyi-aldin Abi Muhammad “Abd -alkâdir 
alhasani aljilâni (whose elaborate biography begins on 
fol. 13), his contemporaries and disciples. 2. Shaikh 
Farid-alhakk wa aldin Ganj-i-Shakar ( pe 25), his 
disciples and contemporaries. 3. From the “time of 
Shaikh Nasir-aldin Mahmüd down to the author's 
time. Khâtimah: The author’s forefathers and his own 
affairs. A complete list of the 256 shaikhs whose bio- 
graphies are given in this book is found on ff. rb—3b,

.(وفيات الاعیان فی انباء ابناء الزمان) Wafayât-ala'yân‏ 

Persian translation of the biographical work of Ibn 
Khallikân (Ahmad bin Muhammad bin Ibrâhim bin 
Abi Bakr), who finished it A.H. 672—A.D. 1273, and 
died A,H. 681—A.D. 1282, 

The Arabic original was edited by F. Wiistenfeld, ‘ Ibn 
Challikani vitae illustrium virorum,' Göttingen, 1835— 
1850, and translated into English by De Slane, 4 vols., 
Paris, 1842-1871. 

This translation, comprising the vitae, Nos. ۱-۴ 
(first part), and Nos. r.o—or (second part), was made 
by Kabir bin Uwais bin Muhammad Allatifi (fol. 2°, 
1,1); he finished the first part in Constantinople on 
the sth of Dhü-alka'dah, A.H. 926 < ۸۰۰ 1520, 
October 17, and the second ۸۱1۰ 928=A.D. 1522 (here 
the name of the month is omitted by a mistake). See 
the colophons on the last page of the first part, No. 
176», fol. ra, and fol. 245. Whether Kabir did ever 
translate more than this, or whether this copy contains 
only one part of his work, we cannot decide. 

The translator died in Kâhirah A.H. 930=A.D.1524, 
according to H. Khalfa vi. p. 455, whose notice we 
quote at full length: ‘And Maulana Azhar-aldin 
Alardabili translated it (viz. Ibn Khallikân's work) 
into Persian, and he died in Kâhirah a.n. 930. And 
1 saw a Persian composition by Kabir bin Uwais bin 
Muhammad Allatifi, commonly known as Kâdizâda, 
where he mentioned that, when Sultân Salim Khan the 
elder was reading the chronicles, and especially the 
biographies of Ibn Khallikân, he translated the book 
for him, and that the Sultân died (A.D. 1520) when he 
had done half the work. And perhaps this Kabir is 
the man commonly known as Azhar-aldin Alarda- 
bili” 

This remark of Hâji Khalfa is, in all particulars, 
confirmed by the introduction which the translator has 
prefixed to his work. It consists of two parts—ff. 10— 
b, about the origin of this translation, ete.; ff. 5>—7a, 
a short vita of Ibn Khallikan. Concerning the cha- 
racter of this work, we have to add that almost all the 
poetry guoted in the original is transferred into the 
translation.

the diwâns of thirty-six poets, and short ones from the 
works of ninety other poets, together 48,000 baits, 
selected from 400,000; but of these ninety poets we

This note makes it evident that copyist (کاتب)‎ 6 
author are the same person, and that this copy is the 
author’s autograph. Indeed, this note would be out of 
its place in any other copy but the author’s autograph. 
The MS., though not dated, may certainly be as old as 
the beginning of the seventeenth century, and many 
additions on the margin (by the same hand) seem to 
represent the last finishing strokes, applied by the 
author to his work. 

After the preface (ff. 5b—6b) the biographies begin. 
The biographical information the author gives is mostly 
very scanty, the poetical quotations are sometimes of 
considerable length. After every article, short or long, 
follows a prayer for the emperor, of one line or two, 
beginning with الهى‎ . In the arrangement of the poets 
we cannot recognise a certain system. Every chapter 
bears the title .ذکر خیر‎ 

The MS. is imperfect at the end; there are wanting 
a few leaves at the utmost, containing the rest of the 
article concerning the author himself.

Majma'-alshu'arâ-i-Jahângirshâhi مچمع الشعرلی)‎ 
Part of a collection of biographies of Persian poets, 

who wrote in praise of the emperor Jahangir (died ۵, 
1037=A.D. 1627), to whom the work is dedicated. 

The title occurs on fol. 52, 1. 2, and on fol. 5» ult. 

The biographies are 151 in number, the last of which 
(on ff.r21b-127)) treats of the author himself (sx\4). 
His name is Kâti'i ( 6); see fol. 41>, 1. 6; fol. 424, 
1.2; 101. 121۳, 1. 9; fol. 1229, 1. 11; fol. 126, 1.8; and 
fol. r27> ult. He must have been in close connec- 
tion with the emperor, very likely as an officer of his 
court. He was an aged man when he wrote this (fol. 
5°, 1.7); his teacher or spiritual guide was Maulana 
Kasim! (fol. 125, 1.8). On fol. 121۳ 1. 7 sq., he says, 
that he, unlike the poets who spent their whole life on 
that single art, had devoted the greatest part of his 
life to ‘the acquisition of virtue’ (+2 .(باکتساب‎ 

This book is the ‘third volume’ (Daftar) of a larger 
one, as the author calls it himself at the beginning of 
the preface (fol. gb, 1. 4). 

An index of the poets is prefixed on ff. 3, 4 by a 
more modern hand. Title: فمپرست اسامی شعرا اک درین‎

This copy is dated the 22nd of Rajab, A.H. 1199— 
A.D. 1785, May 31. On the fly-leaf Sir Gore Ouseley 
has added the following lines :—‘In the first volume 
of the Asiatic Miscellany, printed in 1785, Mr. William 
Chambers, a learned orientalist, says that Mir Gholam 
Ali Azad, the author or compiler of the “ Khazâna-i- 
‘Amirah” is still alive at Aurangabad in the Deckan, 
where, after a series of years spent in literary pursuits 
and extensive travels, he resides in great repute and 
with some splendour, at the age of eighty-five. The 
present Nizam has visited him twice in person at that 
city; and the writer of this article (Mr. W. Chambers) 
is in possession of the copy of a letter addressed to him 
in the year 1775 by the celebrated Ghazi uddin Khan, 
wherein he pays him the highest compliments. The 
work in question was published by him there in the 
sixty-first year of his age; and he is the author of 
several others in verse and prose: among which he 
tells Ghazi uddin Khan in his answer to the above- 
mentioned letter, that his Arabic poems amounted to 
4000 couplets, and his Persian to 8000; confessing at 
the same time, that he was constantly adding something 
to each, though he had then passed the age of seventy. 
But his historical writings are to European readers the 
most curious and valuable of his productions ; and they 
have this particular recommendation, that he was the 
eye-witness of most of the facts which he relates, and 
has himself travelled over the countries which are the 
scene of all his narrations.’

In the preface on ff. 602-03 he states, that he travelled 
to ‘Azimabad in Safar A.H. 1192, that here he took up 
the plan of composing this work, which he executed 
during the journey to Calcutta and finished on the 3rd 


of the second Jumâdâ, A.H. 1193 —A.D. 1779, June 
18th. See fol. ga,l.3: 
بوده زمه جماد دویم سپوم نه بیش ونه کم‎ 

In the conclusion, on ff. 1825-1833, he proceeds to 
state, that after having composed this during the jour- 
ney to Calcutta in A. H. 1193, he came on his return to 
Lucknow A.H. 1194; here he got much more informa- 
tion about other poets. This, however, he could not 
incorporate in his work, because he thought it necessary 
to confine himself to those poets, of whom he had given 
a list in the introduction to his work, 

This list, which we find on ff. 3b-pb, is dated from 
A.H. 1197= A.D. 1783. 

قمبرست اسامی خوش بیان Gree‏ زبان سنة Title:‏ 
۰ جریا 

Accordingly we have to suppose, that the preface and 
the work itself were composed A.H. 1193, but that the 
conclusion was added at the same time with the index 
of the poets, viz. A.H. 1197. 

The whole MS. is written by one hand, very likely 
the author’s own. 

The poets are 247 in number, and they are arranged 
alphabetically. The careful biographical information, 
along with the many and extensive extracts from 
Diwans, renders the work very valuable indeed. There 
occur many poets whom Garcin de Tassy (in his His- 
toire de la Littérature Hindouie et Hindoustanie) does 
not even mention, and the very useful list of Rékhta 
poets given by A. Sprenger (in his Catalogue, p. 195 sq.) 
might be considerably enriched from this source with 
valuable biographical information.
